want to play what he said last night. >> they put up with george bush, i, bob dole. we are disappointed with george w. and then by mitt romney. now coming loaded for bear for 2016. i predict the hard right will take over the republican party in 2016 and the nomination is going to -- rand paul. the. >> what do you think about that, cheryl? rand paul with 16% behind chris christie at 21. is he h the won to watch that has the structure, grassroots structure that a republican party nominee needs? >> i don't think so. with george w. bush you had an idealogue who successfully pretended to be a prague mattist to get into office. with romney you have a pragmatist who tried to convert himself into an idealogue. with chris christie you have the pragmatist versus paul the idealogue. i think republicans are desperate for someone who's tacking more to the center to policies that, in fact, most americans prefer. >> steve, you were smiling. what's your take? >> i was smiling because with all due respect to chris matthews rand paul has a long-term problem. he's a crack pot problem. the southern avenger

called a liberal because i supported gay marriage and medical cannabis and i thought george w. bush's economic plan was a bad idea. turns out i wasn't liberal, i was prematurely mainstream. it is hard to imagine no social security, no medicare or medicaid. no civil rights act. no labor rights, no g.i. bill. all of the ideas were considered insanely radical before they were considered liberal then mainstream. but the status quo has been smearing the word "liberal" for dates that liberals are big spending, flag-burning america-hating tax junkies who only want to create child pornography and get you hooked on well ware fare because we think being poor is awesome while smoking crack. dude that, is not fair. all liberals are preachy but liberals are anti-pollution and exploitation of labor, anti-miss ongy and bigotry, pro freedom of the press and pro freedom of religion, pro private property and generally have better taste in music. it is true. liberal is not synonymous with democrat. when i meet someone who only knows of the fox bubble definition of liberal, i tell them the word comes f
